All the years between youth and now fly away into the air and the new songs being played promise an endless joy. William Harries Graham does that every night he sings his own songs, and as long as he does that the world will be a fine place to live. To hear him now is to hear it all."
Fresh off a 2018 summer European tour, William's new record JAKES drops in time for SXSW. JAKES is named after the neon sign in the back room of the legendary Continental Club in Austin, TX, where William and his band (featuring Abra Moore, Mike Meadows, David Goodrich, and Andrew Duplantis) play most Wednesdays nights.
